T-shirt transfer paper buying help!
Hiya!

My friend and I are going to attempt to make some homestuck-themed hoodies and I have yet to buy the transfer paper for a couple of reasons...

firstly I'm not sure where to get them from! I know a lot of people have been making these hoodies and was hoping someone would be able to point me towards a good brand/place to buy them. (I'm not in the UK right now though so online buying is kind of a must!)

Secondly, in my search I've come across a lot of reviews of things going wrong...these hoodies were expensive all together so I really don't want something ruining them so is there something I should be wary of doing or a certain brand to steer clear from?


Thank you!

Used this:

For this costume:

I used it to make the back design on his jacket, so that will give you an idea of how it looks.

WHSmith sell some for 12 pounds for 10 sheets and its fantastic! its the stuff you dont have to reverse you just print, cut out and peel then iron on. Used it for LOTS of stuff as well as general clothes ^^

I used this for my Jade costume: http://www.whsmith.co.uk/Products/WHSmith-Dark-TShirt-Transfers-5-Sheets+Paper+33122878

Fantastic stuff, no problems. Bear in mind you only need this 'dark' one if you want white on the transfer, if you're doing a colour transfer you can buy the 'light t-shirt' versions which are cheaper.

Perfect, thank you guys so much! Those ones aren't super pricey like some others I saw too, excellent~

@Amy-Lou: I actually have Jade in the works at the moment and was wondering about dark transfer paper too, so that's perfect stuff thanks! =D
